It's a white liquid, sprayable ... for sealing wheels.How do you use it?
Spray onto clean wheels, leave for 60 seconds "to soak in"
and buff up to a shine.How did you use it?
Well, I'm gambling, but I think the snow is now behind us ... the last of it going this last week. I'm gambling because for the last couple of years we've had some at the end of April, but I think for the one or two days it might happen, it's best to get the winter tyres off and the summer rubber on the car.
I prepared the wheels with a spritz of Serious Performance Ultra Citrus Cleaner (any general purpose cleaner will do), a spritz of Car-Chem Tar & Glue Remover [bonus review, here] which is very good and put me well in mind of Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover but with a much shinier result afterwards. Next, Serious Performance Paint Cleanser, ready for the sealant and finally, spritz the sealant on ... 60 seconds ... buff ... done.http://www.pjgh.co.uk/gallery_albums/ca ... G_2302.jpg

... sorry about the muddy skirts, but after washing and drying, she popped out for something or other and I fitted the summer wheels upon its return. Typical
You get a sense of the brightness of the wheels anyway.So, what do you think of it?
Easy to apply and certainly a nice shine. Time will tell as to its performance. The first wash will certainly show how it might fair.
9/10 ... straight-forward to apply, does exactly what it says on the bottle, doesn't "Wow!", but then I'm not sure what in a wheel sealant would wow.
